In the week following Thanksgiving, Americans will spend millions of dollars in the shopping frenzies around Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday is a day to remind us all that giving means much more than the exchange of material goods—it means volunteering at a local shelter, helping out a friend in need, and, of course, donating to worthy causes.
The North Dakota Human Rights Coalition (NDHRC) invites you to our 5th Annual Human Rights Summit on Saturday November 22nd, 2014. The topic will be “Making Change Happen in North Dakota.”
Date: Saturday November 22nd, 2014
Location: The Avalon, 613 1st Avenue North, Fargo, ND
The North Dakota Human Rights Coalition works to effect change so that all people in North Dakota enjoy full human rights. To that end, we administered a brief survey to all state legislative candidates to ascertain their stances on key legislative issues.
The survey asked about five issues important to our members. The answers to these surveys are being published to inform voters as they conduct research in preparation for the November election.

By providing policymakers and citizens with benchmarks of child well-being, North Dakota KIDS COUNT seeks to enrich local and state discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children.
